The sign glows in the dark. It is rather large and looks awful.

Get a toy jcb from the charity shop and get an elf to park it badly next to it. Preferably crashed into it.

Elf in handcuffs by the sign

Just cut my hand pretty badly fitting this bauble in but think we can agree it was totally worthwhile

Is there a very ill or disabled person in the house, OP? Just trying to work out if he’s overstepping or in desperation. really really hope OP says no 🤞🏻

PooleySpooley Thu 20-Dec-18 20:59:05

I love it 😂

AnneTwackie Thu 20-Dec-18 21:01:18

No, definitely not disabled, rants to me about how unfair everyone is as I smile and nod. I am very dull and therefore beyond suspicion

Brick through it? Sorry, brick with glitter on it through it?

InvisibleLlama Thu 20-Dec-18 21:02:12

Tinsel, lights and a Farrow and Ball paint card, if you please.

PositivelyPERF Thu 20-Dec-18 21:04:28

No, definitely not disabled sighs contentedly and settles in 🍿 🍷 🛋

Carry on, OP.

Philomensapie Thu 20-Dec-18 21:05:43

YANBU. In fact, YWBU not to.

tattyheadsmum Thu 20-Dec-18 21:06:33

Oh no. Who can be first to say "invisible disability"?

Do I win??

Grilledaubergines Thu 20-Dec-18 21:07:47

I’d remove the sign. And plonk the tinsel in its place. People can’t just make up their own laws at others’ expense. Cheeky as fuck.

AnneTwackie Thu 20-Dec-18 21:11:10

Santa has parked, I feel alive! You’ve made me realise I’ve been thinking about this too short term, think elf might have to appear tomorrow

My favourite thread of the day!

All the suggestions are brilliant. Esp your photo, the Santa park here sign and fairy lights.

Do them, do them, do them!

Sorry that I'm too sad to come out with better ideas to add.

sidesplittinglol Thu 20-Dec-18 21:14:03

Can you please send us an updated photo of the finished look ?

iknowimcoming Thu 20-Dec-18 21:15:57

We are not worthy OP - well played Sir, well played grin

AnneTwackie Thu 20-Dec-18 21:16:20

It’s the darker picture above, couldn’t use flash because stealth mode, think it needs some lights tomorrow

PositivelyPERF Thu 20-Dec-18 21:17:12

But I have to know, OP! Did you glue it down?

AnneTwackie Thu 20-Dec-18 21:19:01

It’s got glue on it but I couldn’t stand holding it because of all the stealth so don’t know if it will stick

I really like your miniature parking ticket and wheelclamp.
If the sign is still there next week, can you put a sleigh and reindeer on Christmas eve?

Zintox Thu 20-Dec-18 21:19:40

That is epic. Well played.

AnneTwackie Thu 20-Dec-18 21:23:50

Yes squiff thanks all fgrin
